Barca presidential Election candidates


Current Barcelona news is increasingly dominated by the club’s presidential elections which are now just two days away with a winner expected to be announced on Sunday.

Joan Laporta, Toni Freixa and Victor Font are the three candidates on the final ballot and each has a different idea on the future of the club and will appoint a new board following their triumph.

It has now been highlighted by Cadena Cope how 20,663 have already been cast by postal vote – 90.6 percent of the members who had requested such a vote.

The rules of the delayed election now mean that postal ballots will be included in this election, with the method encouraged to reduce potential crowds at polling stations on the day due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is highlighted how 22,811 members signed up for the postal ballot, although none of the votes will be opened or counted until all votes are submitted by the deadline on 7 March.
